Question how to get secondary particle information 

Keywords: secondary particle energy deposit

Hi .

I want to get the response of a detector to secondary particles produced when
high energy protons interact with shielding material around the detector.
I usually do it with UserSteppingAction.cc, but is there a way to do the 
same with SensitiveDectectors and Hits ??

What I want is the energy deposited in the detector due to the different 
secodaries produced, viz, neutrons, gammas .Will the result obtained using 
UserSteppingAction.cc be different from that using Sensitive Detectors and 
Hits ?
What is the advantage of using Sensitive Detectors and Hits over UserSteppingAction.cc
??

Thanks in advance.
